I have this path of the FILA logo

I am using stroke to trace around the outline, are there any other effects or techniques I can use to make use of the path? The client would really like to get a 3D effect inside the F, but any cool effects using the shape will work!

It's for this projection mapping installation in a store:

Thanks for any help!

You can do more with the shape layers, such as animating the trim paths value with a filled shape.

You can wiggle paths.

You can duplicate the path and offset it in the Z axis for 3D-type effects.

If you copy the mask path to a null as a motion path, the possibilities become almost endless. You can animate any object to go around the shape, or a light, or a particle emitter.
